As a project leader & domain expert with IMM/One Planet Research Center, I aim to combine disruptive new biosensor technologies from various domains of natural sciences with latest chip and digital technologies for real life applications. I work with Precision Health & Nutrition and Food & Environmental Sensing programs at One Planet.

I completed my Ph.D. at Duke University, Durham NC, USA in the field of Computational Materials Physics in collaboration with Honda Research Inc., USA, investigating phase diagrams of transition metal catalyst nanoparticles for the growth of high purity single walled carbon nanotubes. Following this, I did my postdoctoral research in theoretical biophysics and obtained the Dorothea Schlözer Research Fellowship at the Georg-August-University at Göttingen, Germany, where I applied multi-scale simulation methods to investigate pore formation in lipid membranes to model the action of membrane-active peptides for drug delivery.

I have been a team member of the FNWI Interdisciplinary Research Platform (IRP) at Radboud University, NL, and a project manager for consortium projects in Artificial Intelligence, Green IT and Sustainability (EU project AI-Regio and the regional initiative Engineering Business Intelligence).
